Steven Rensovoux : Tell us about your technique of creating "I SURVIVED ART" works, also "I SURVIVED INFORMATION" and my personal favorite "HAPPY ART HISTORY!" artworks.
Boris Zoubkous : I have consciously chosen psycho-neurotic, geometry controlled, slow pacing art work creation technique. Actually every picture of the themes you've mentioned is a scream, emotional statement, outburst, desperate smart assness, but cought up in a monotonous, slowly unfolding mosaic gluing structure, kind of a slow scream, extended in space, time and beyond. I needed that tension of an explosion wrapped in a blotting paper, very methodical despair, on the brink of the rapture of creating. Kind of slow motion volcano erupting video, played backwards. Every step is balanced, controlled : from cutting out mosaic shapes, trimming, fitting, calculating, mixing my own glue, but meta controlled by spiritual and subconscious energy. Kind of like boiling ice. When I glue the mosaic shapes, I only use bare hands- the sensetivity is crucial, every shape is placed in its location with effort, patience, calculation and rational control, but with the scale breaking feelings and emotional load. My fingers are horribly soar, with the skin peeling/ripping from the dried glue, fresh glue, constant washing hands, horrible skin irritation, small wounds and skin cracks. The build up of the glue on the fingers,- the theme of slowing down, torment, scream , - surviving continues. I've tried working in gloves or with tweezers, - no feelings, no emotions, - like operating a dead body. I do need the surface/material resistance, hurting and overcoming, enduring and surviving. That is why I want the audience to understand and most importantly feel (feeling is the highest form of understanding) the process and controlled torment or tormented control involved in creation of these art works. I want viewers to feel (not just see) beyond the material surface of my artworks. Chaos multiplied by chaos creates harmony for me. So, I kind of create a spiritual Solitaire with the material energy of mosaic shapes and spiritual energy of expression.

Steven Rensovoux : There is humor and wounded humanism in your art works, where they come from?
Boris Zoubkous: I always felt and feel connected to the much bigger super energies like Nature and God, and being human - learning,
struggling, surviving - I always feel the dialectics, as I called it - catastrophic cuteness of the world, hence the interplay of meanings and
tensions in my art works.

Tiny example : my work " LOOK IT",- this is how onomatopoetically children in poor Manhattan schools where I've tought Art for many years
say "Look at it" or "Look at this". These kids are naive, exalted and serious at the same time when they say "LOOK IT !" , - this is a perfect
portrait of an artist for me : you are trying to drive attention to what you show in your art work, while being naive, exalted and serious, hence
the poignant humor, philosophical humanism and paradoxical optimism in my art.
